Add Sous Vide to Your Home Cooking Arsenal

Sous vide cooking is one of the most useful cooking skills you can develop because it consistently cooks food to the perfect temperature. The food cooks slowly in a vacuum-sealed package in a water bath, making it nearly impossible to overcook or dry out the food. The result is a flavorful, tender eating experience.

Sous vide is a perfect cooking method for duck breast whether you choose to prepare it with or without the skin on. Want a leaner option? Remove the skin. Love the crispy skin on duck breast? Sous vide can deliver that with one extra step.

To prepare sous vide duck breast, follow these simple steps for optimum tenderness:

  • Place the duck breast and spices like thyme and rosemary in a vacuum-sealed package.
  • Fill large pot 2/3 full with water and submerge package in water.
  • Use sous vide precision cooking stick set at 140 °F for 1 to 4 hours.
  • Remove breast from package. If skin is on, score the duck breast skin.
  • Sear skinless breast in sauté pan over medium-high heat to reach desired color or sauté skin side down to render fat and crisp skin before searing other side.
